I'm not sure where to begin. Is it perhaps the irony of buying a consumer product that speaks to the ills of consumerism? Yet I see in Fight Club the greatest gift to society. I see in it the solution to the world's present state of permanent adolescence.

Never before has a generation so diligently recorded themselves accomplishing so little. Society has us chasing 'likes' and 'shares' so we can feel more important than we are. We're posting photos of our food as if what we had for dinner defines us a person. We treat elections like reality TV shows. We're paying for higher education in order to get jobs that pay for our higher education. We believe we are all going to be social media stars and movie gods. But we won't. What we think is anti-establishment is establishment. We've become the thing that we stood against.

All this potential, being squandered. I'm thinking Fight Club is what we really need. If you open your mind and let go, it will change your life. It will have you sizing people up. You'll start wearing more red. You'll look at ads and start asking "why?" You'll get in better shape, not for others, but for yourself. You'll realize a controlling woman is the last thing you need in your life. You'll appreciate soap. You'll laugh at others trying to get the perfect selfie. You'll start thinking for yourself.

Trust me,

Love this movie, always have, and the quality of the Blu-ray is great. The reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because the title "Multi-Format" is misleading; it's only the Blu-ray copy of the movie, no bonus DVD or what I was hoping for, a digital version.

I'll pull this off the shelf every once in a while as a reminder to try and keep my life as simple as possible - I just need to stave off the urge to smash just about everything I own and move into a rundown house for the sake of true freedom after every viewing
Glad this was part of the inspiration behind the Mr Robot series

Fight club is wildest and weirdest movie I have ever seen!I enjoyed the twist in the movie. I love watching this movie even if it is a bit dated, I mean seeing a pay telephone like going back in a time machine. There was no social media and yet the whole idea of "fight club" spread from city to city.The good old days were simple and awesome.

Great movie, great blue ray. After you pop it in, you see the blu ray menu for some random chick flick, making you think, "WTF happened?" Suddenly, in true Tyler Durden fashion, all is revealed to be a lie intended to get a reaction out of you. Welcome to fight club.

I thought it funny that Amazon suddenly pulled this from their shelves after receiving complaints. They probably shut it off as soon as the fake menu appeared.

I have never seen a movie this good, or honestly quite this twisted. I enjoyed all the backstory at the beginning, and the ending was so unpredictable that it kind of scared me, and I was thinking about it for the rest of the day, so much so that I had to watch it again to understand it, and it was no less interesting, and I caught the single frame flashes of Tyler Durden at the beginning, and that was creepy to me. On the top movies list on imdb, this is number 10, and it is one of the only one that I believe deserves the rating it got. I recommend that averyone who likes action or scary movies should watch this movie. Hope this helped!

I've seen this many times, but was recently reminded of it after watching Stephan Molyneux's discussion of the film/book on YouTube. I picked up the blu-ray version because it's such a bargain. Upon dropping it into my blu-ray player and reaching the main menu I was immediately disappointed and angry. Had to pull the disc and double check. Nice one. You got me.

Still arguably my all time favorite movie. Also the movie that got me into the work of author Chuck Palahniuk. I'm probably the least violent dude you'll ever meet, but this movie is about so much more than fighting (yeah, there's violence, but there's so much more to it than that - a lot of the subplots could even make interesting feature length films, like being a support group "tourist" - a very quirky, original idea. The book and movie are chock full of gold like that). About the desperate lengths some people go to to try to find their place in, and to try to cope with, our maddening capitalist, corporate, Type A, workaholic, macho, "alpha", Trump-loving society (been there - if only my "escape" was as cool and resourceful as Tyler, haha).

Plus it really makes you question said society, whether you should keep trying to be a "normal", soulless corporate drone, endlessly chasing "success", or go your own way (which is what I've tried to do). I didn't agree with all Tyler said, and certainly not with all his methods, but I agreed with enough of what he said to make him one of the most interesting book and film characters I've ever encountered. David Fincher's best film. If only more films could do Chuck's writing justice (not as big a fan of his recent stuff, but some of his earlier stuff could still make great films, just wish the movie of Choke had turned out better). If you agree with my review at all, you can mostly find me these days at twitter dot com/ShyLivesMatter Peace :)

I was in one of those moods when I picked this up. I just wanted to watch a movie about fighting, so why not watch one called "Fight Club"? I was really excited about seeing this, too, being a big fan of Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, and Helena Bonham Carter.

The majority of the movie was really great, it kept me watching because of the great mixture of drama, comedy, and violence. The only problem was that the ending was quite unexpected. I'm not going to say what happened (just in case you haven't seen it yet), but I will let you know that it actually made me think...which was not what I wanted to do at that time. That was my first time watching it.

The second time, I enjoyed it even more. The acting is amazing, the story line is great, but it has a deeper ending than you would come to expect from a movie about a Fight Club. Just as a warning for when you go and rent it...because you definitly should. This is on the list of movies that you have to see before you die.

Just saying.
